Ruislip High alumni attend Careers Fair
Students from Years 11 - 13 took part in our annual Careers Fair in the man hall on Thursday 6th February. The school hosted volunteers from a variety of different companies, further education providers, and independent careers advisors. Students had time to be able to talk to all of the volunteers and gain a better understanding of the wide range of opportunities available to them.
Organiser Ms Brown said, “It was great to see a number of former students also in attendance, who were able to offer advice for our current students, including having a back-up plan and how to follow their passion.”
Year 9 and 10 students were also able to attend the Careers Fair during their break time, and many students took up this opportunity. They were able to ask a variety of questions, while collecting a lot of free stationery!
Students in Year 7 had a taste of the real world when they took part in Natwest MoneySense Workshops on Wednesday 5th Feb. They worked in groups to research and present a fully costed mobile phone plan for a mobile of their choice. It was clear that students got a lot out of the workshops, developing their investigating, budgeting and decision-making skills. Some students even extending their knowledge of how phones work. This including learning about micro-SD cards and what a megapixel is. They also heard about the difference between 3G and 4G technology.
